comment Why is Isaiah 14:12-15 interpreted by some to refer to Satan?
@J.C.Salomon Christians believe that the satan is an agent provocateur but is thereby doing what God commanded him to, and “fallen” or “rebellious”. I'm not really sure there is so much difference except a greater degree of personification and more general mention/emphasis: mainstream Christianity isn't dualist, allowing a satan that acts independently of God's ultimate authority.

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
The Hebrew in 37 and 42 seem to be identical for the phrase: "ידע תדע כי מות תמות". I have no idea what the best translation is in each case though, but I do find it interesting that the NET Bible leaves the interpretation I'm suggesting open: net.bible.org/#!bible/1+Kings+2:29. Perhaps I need to ask another question about this?

comment 2 Tim 4:17: “I was delivered from the lion’s mouth” - Is this about Colosseum?
Does λέων refer specifically to what we'd call a lion today, or was it used generically to speak of any (large) wild cat?

comment How does Jesus' argument from David and the show bread work?
This is a really excellent answer. I'm interested how you interpret John 5:18: it seems to be John's voice saying Jesus was breaking the Sabbath (different case of course, but for me it casts doubt on "Jesus does not break the Law" at least in the superficial sense)

comment Did God say that Adam will die on the same day he ate the fruit?
I don't know Hebrew, but is it possible that this instance can be understood as "on the day you go out" Shimei would "know that he was to die". This reading isn't possible with the Gen 2 text "in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die".

There may be a link with the Alexander in Ephesus and 1 Corinthians 15:32. Or there may not :)
